NAMSS and the Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB) recently hosted an hour-long informational webinar on FSMB's Interstate Medical Licensure Compact. This information is being provided to all NAMSS members and non-members alike to educate MSPs about the Compact, and how to advocate for it.
NAMSS Official Position Statement on the Interstate Medical Licensure Compact
The National Association Medical Staff Services (NAMSS) supports the Interstate Medical Licensure Compact created by the Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB). The model legislation will expedite and streamline the process for physicians to attain licensure in multiple states while preserving standards of care and safety. By simplifying the administrative process for licensure approval, the compact would support the work of Medical Services Professionals (MSPs) in the onboarding and credentialing of physicians. Implementing the compact would allow MSPs to spend less time waiting for licensure approval, significantly shortening the time that it takes for the medical staff to process a new applicant. NAMSS commends the creation of this compact and supports efforts to incorporate it into state laws across the nation.
